    Try following and unfollowing, that is odd though

    Followed and unfollowed (Sorry SAK if that notified you), but they'd have to post another blog entry to see if it really worked lmao

    I'll update if it happens again with SAK or anyone else

    Same thing happened for me once with @BORTZ , but I thought he just wanted to let everyone know because he was mod or something.

    Look i'm sorry that get notifications from me even if you don't want them, but is not my fault. I can't do anything about it unless you want me to just stop posting stuff. :ninja:

    Wasn't blaming you, nor was this topic aimed at you.
    I was inquiring to the staff as to why this was happening, not complaining about you making blog entries.

    Yeah this happens the same to me for people I don't follow. It's weird and I hope the staff will do something about it because I don't like getting 20 notifications and 75% of them are blog entries....

    Very true, but I do choose active people I don't/do want to follow. Most of them are people who joined to make a help thread and to never return again lol

    You are probably following the blog itself.
    Go to the blog page and click unfollow on the top right.

    Ah. That did the trick.

    I don't remember specifically following that blog, does it do that automatically at some point?
    Either way, the problem is solved now :)
